There is widespread concern in the UK and elsewhere about growing inequality both at the top end - CEOs and bankers with their equity linked incentives – and at the bottom – zero hours contracts and cuts in welfare benefits.

The questions for this seminar are: what is happening, why, and how should we respond? Is this a consequence of globalisation where emerging market growth may be narrowing the income gap globally or is it a failure of domestic policy and will? And which aspects of inequality matter most?
